'Babe' Ruth Plays Final
Game In New York As
As YankeeRegular
NEW YORK, Sept. 24. - (P) - The
Detroit Tigers today became cham-
pions of the American League.
Bucky Harris' Red Sox definitely
eliminated the New York Yankees
from the running by defeating the
team from the Bronx 5 to 0, leaving
the Tigers six games in front and
making it mathematically impossible
for the Yankees to overhaul them be-
fore the conclusion of the schedule
next Sunday.
The standing of the teams after to-
day's game is:
W L Pet.
Detroit ..............97 52 .651
New York ...........91 58 .611
Even if the Tigers lose their re-
maining five games and the Yankees
win all five of the games that remain
on their schedule, the standings then
would be :
W L Pct,
Detroit.............97 57 .630
New York..........96 58 .623
Thus, the man who was deposed as
manager of the Tigers in favor of
Mickey Cochrane to become pilot of
the Red Sox, saw his team hand the
championship to the club he piloted
for four years. Bucky won the pen-
nantt for the Tigers today, while his
forme' mates were enjoying a day of
rest in Detroit.
And Bucky banked on a raw recruit
to throw back the Yankees - Johnny
Merena, a young southpaw up from
the Internatonal League. Merena held
the slugging Yankees to four hits,
while his mates hit in timely fashion
to give him an early lead and he never
was in serious danger over the route.
Passes and two errors on one play
by Rolfe on Merena's sacrifice bunt
accounted for two runs without the
aid of a hit in the second inning.
Babe Ruth, making his last appear-
ance of the season in Yankee Sta-
dium, took his place in right field but
retired after drawing a base on balls
in the first inning, when Hoag ran
for him. Only about 3,000 fans turned
out to see Ruth's farewell and the
elimination of the Yankees.
The Yankees did not get a hit off
Merena until the fourth, which Geh-
rig opened with a single past Morgan.
Lou reached second when Morgan
threw wide to Lary on Selkirk's boun-
der, but Lazzeri hit into a double play
and Chapman struck out.
Jack Blott To Assume
New Job At Wesleyan
Wesleyan (Conn.) University foot-
ball candidates will report for their
first practice of the season under the
direction of Jack Blott, Wesleyan's
new coach from Michigan. Assisting
Blott, will be Dale W. Lash, Spring-
field College product and Norman H.
Daniels, Michigan end star of three
years ago.
As a nucleus for the Michigan
punting and passing game which will
be used by the Cardinal and Black
this season, Blott is counting heavily
on Capt. Paul Eyerly, of Bloomsburg,
Pa., a good center on last year's team,
and Kemper Burton, a promising
kicker from Chestnut Hill, Pa.

Under the auspices of the Univer-
sity R.O.T.C. corps, a rifle shoot for
freshmen was held during Orienta-
tion Week for the various groups.
The individual winner was W. R.
Crow, whose score was 95. Second
place was won by Goff Smith with a
94, and W. Prall and Kenneth Swain
were third and fourth with scores of
93 and 90 respectively.

Tiger "Sparkplug"




Just a promising hurler last year
and this year co-holder of the Ameri-
can League record for consecutive
pitching wins, Rowe is considered 'to
have fiirnishcd one of the important
sparks which sent the Tigers to their
first American League pennant in
25 years. He has been definitely se-
lected to pitch the opening game of
the World Series.
Added To I-M
Ex-National A.A.U. Champ
Will Assist Johnstone
With Boxing Classes
With the signing of' Martin Levan-
dowski as assistant boxing coach, the
Intramural department will increase
its boxing classes from twice weekly
to daily with both Coach Johnstone
and Levandowski as tutors. Individual
attention by private appointment will
be available to all students who have
a yen to try their hand at the noble
art of self defence and from the
ability of these two men some excel-
lent results may be expected.
Levandowski was National Junior
A.A.U. champion in the light heavy-
weight division in 1928, annexing the
title in Detroit, and the next year
fought his way to victory in the Sen-
ior A.A.U. tournament at Boston.
Later he entered international com-
petiton and fought successfully
against Canada, Italy and Japan.
Following his amateur success, Levan-
dowski entered the professional ranks
to put himself through school and
fought professionally while attending
State Normal at Kalamazoo.
This year Levandowski is entering
the University as a medical student
and has accepted the position as as-
sistant boxing coach, to aid in financ-
ing his schooling.
That Coach Levandowski, both be-
cause of his amateur record and his
professional success, will stimulate in-
tramural boxing is the opinion of Di-
rector Mitchell, and the daily lessons
which are now available for both fac-
ulty and students will prove particu-
larly popular. Should Michigan ever
enter Intercollegiate boxing, this
training which Levandowski can give
his proteges should prove invaluable
in presenting Michigan with another
type of championship.
Columbia University's only two
football games away from New York
this fall will be Yale at New Haven
on Oct. 6, and Pennsylvania at Phil-
adelphia Nov. 17.

Rainbow Beats
Endeavor In
Fifth Contest,
Challenger Tears Sail At
Start; Is Third Straight
Win For Americans
NEWPORT, R. IL, Sept. 24. -P)-
Fighting off a closing rush by the
British challenger Endeavour, the
America's Cup defender Rainbow to-
day scored her third straight victory
over the invader in the fifth race of
the international yachting series and
needs only one more victory to retain
the cup.
Endeavour was approximately a
mile astern as the white-hulled de-
fender swept majestically across the
finish line. Noth yachs immediately
agreed to race tomorrow.
The official finish for the 30-mile
leeward-windward course was Rain-
bow 2:34:05, Endeavour 2:38:06,
making the defender's official margin
four minutes, one second.
This was almost half an hour over
the cup record of 3:24:37 set by Vigi-
lant in the second race against the
British challenger Valkyrie II in 1893
and 11 minutes over the time of En-
deavour in the first race a week ago
Harassed by an unruly spinnaker
at the start, which fouled a jib stay
and then tore as it was set, T. O. M.
Sopwith and his British crew made a
game but futile tail chase most of the
way, cutting off a minute on the finalt
15-mile windward leg of the five-min-l
ute advantage Rainbow had built up1
at the turn.1
The defender's spinnaker also splitt
45 minutes after the start but Harold
S. Vanderbilt's crack crew broke outt
a new one from below decks and
had it set in four minutes, probably
a record for sail-handling.f
Sopwith never was able to get En-t
deavour's Annie Oakley drawing and<
had to douse it and set a Genoa jibt
for the latter stages of the leewardl
leg. It was here that Rainbow builtt
up the big advantage she held safelyt
on the beat home.
The breeze was good during most ofx
the race, blowing an estimated 15i
knots at the start and the sea
smoothed out after being rough att
the start.t
Except for the first few minutes,
when the accidents to both yachts
sails caused some excitement, it wast
the least interesting of the five races
sailed to a decision.t
When Vanderbilt rounded the turnt
with his five-minute lead, the race
was as good as over. Sopwith tacked1
desperately all the way 'home but thet
American defender followed Endea-(
vour's every move and never allowed)
her to get free.
During the last half of the leg, En-
deavour began to close up the gapt
but she never really got close enought
to make a contest of it.
ROYAL OAK, Mich., Sept. 24. -As
a part of a campaign to revive athlet-
ics at Royal Oak High School, the
alumni have planned a pre-season

Potsy Clark, coach of the Detroit

Giants Retain Lead Of
Two Games With Four

NEW YORK, Sept. 24.-- Although
the Cardinals gained a half game by
beating the Cubs today, and cut the
lead of the Giants to two full games,
Frankie Frisch's team still has a
tough row to hoe during the next six
days if they are to overhaul the Na-
tional League leaders.
The Giants have only four games
remaining on their schedule, two
each with the Phils and Dodgers. If
the Giants win all four, the Cards
cannot win the pennant by sweeping
their six games. So the Giants must
lose one of their four games if the
Cards are to finish in a tie for the
top rung.
If both teams win all of their re-
maining games, then the final stand-
